Book Description:

After a tragic accident that plays on an endless loop in her mind, wild child Kate Jolie died inside. She now functions only through her rigid, ironclad routine, which keeps her mind and soul in check – balancing her in a dangerously precarious position between life and death

Rocker and Master's student Sam North knows no limits and seeks out every challenge to conquer and defy. With his cocky grin, piercings, colorful tattoos, undress-you bedroom eyes and magnetic sex appeal, he has no trouble finding women to warm his bed. When he spies his new professor, the gorgeous Ms. Jolie, she’s just another summit he wants to climb in order to reach its peak. But as he begins to catch glimpses of her soul, she becomes his Everest.

Kate Jolie is the only woman who wants nothing to do with Sam North - and the only woman he can’t do without.


My Take On The Book:

Its no surprise to you guys that I find Ms. Mousseau to be an extremely talented writer. I completely and utterly adore her work. The worlds she creates are so beautiful and filled with raw emotion. They sizzle and entice. What many of you don't know is my complete and utter fascination with Sam North lol. From book 1 he wormed his way into my heart and became my favorite North of the series... tho Josh is slowly moving his way up in the ranks. What is suprising is how long it took me to actually crack open this book.

I'm a fast reader and in the past, I've devoured The True North Series in as little as 3 hours. I knew I wanted to savor this one and I wanted to give the best review I could of this book. So I read it close to my post date, the day before to be perfectly honest and dove right into the review once it was finished. 

The Great (Pros):

  • Sam. He has always and will quite possible always be my favorite North. His attempts at being aloof and strong and unaffected are just that attempts. And pretty feeble ones if you ask me. He's still a strong man, with an iron will but he can't really hide the sweetheart he is no matter how hard he tries.

  • Kate/Jolie. What is not to love about this firecracker survivor. She's a shattered woman who has gone through what many haven't and should never but she makes herself keep going. The way she grows as a character is breathtaking.

  • The setting. I like the setting of this book more than the others. While Sam is very much a family man, and the book has a lot of family moments I felt like it was a breath of fresh air. It takes place almost completely away from said family and I feel like it help the story progress rather than hinder it.

  • The backstory. While we know of Sam from the previous books we don't know Sam till this book and its a very beautiful story. Kate's story is even more beautiful and full of perseverance. She's such a strong character, completely vulnerable and racked with guilt but yet so strong.

  • The Flu. So simple and yet a perfect description of the situation. Being love struck has very flu like symptoms so I found this to be hilarious and very accurate.


The Not So Great (Cons):

  • Will. I know! It absolutely kills me to write this, as he is literally Sam but on a bike. I loved him in previous stories, and I can appreciate that he will quite possibly be the hardest of the North brother to tame but he was so abrassive and rough. Omg, heaven help me for saying this but too rough I kinda wanted to shake the dude and maybe smack him upside the head. 

  • Kate's Mom. I both loved and hated her. She wasn't a bad character but I grew to love Kate immensly so any hardships on her felt like a physical blow to me. 



5 Quills

A sizzling read I could dive into over and over. This book, this story is like your favorite song, or your favorite pair of shoes. Priceless and will always hold a special place in your heart. I can't recommend this book enough. And as always, while all the books in this series are beautiful and worth reading and should be read in synchronicity, they can be read as standalone.
